COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In spite of modern brewing technology, this beer is brewed according to ancient traditions. It unites, now as in the past, the best products of our soil: rich barley and fine hops.. Its refined character, with a pure and rich taste, will captivate you. It is matured at length in cellar and bottle, and is guaranteed to be brewed only from pale malts. It is traditionally top-fermented and is 100% pure. The Gouden Carolus Triple has a unique colour and a full flavour due to its well-balanced hopping. To properly savour the Golden Carolus Triple, pour slowly in one movement leaving the yeast deposit in the bottle. This beer may be served cool but not chilled: 7-8C is recommended. In 2002 this beer won the Gold Award in the World Beer Cup, San Diego, USA in the Triple category.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Aroma is fresh bananas. Flavor has a hop bite with a sweet body. Like an evil ex :) Bitter finish with sweet notes. Definite Bazooka Bubblegum notes in this one.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Draft - Brasserie Beck. Hazed yellow, thin foamy white head. Initial aromas of cotton candy perfume warm to notes of anise and coriander. Room temp bring out notes of sweet bready citrus. Honeyed fuzzy fruit and waxy spice flavors ride touches of floral grassiness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, fruity finish. A good sipper on this warm summer afternoon...

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUN 17, 2008
750 ml bottle. A cloudy golden beer with a generous and persistent white head. Nice aroma, quite powerful and hoppy, with notes of flowers, grass, citric fruits, spices and some alcohol. The flavour is quite sweet, not totally but enough balanced, and with spicy and fruity notes. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness and some alcohol. Very good tripel, quite drinkable for its size.

Yes fathers day (and my son has made it even better with some fine beer) and Chicagobears and I are in a sample mood. This is a wonderful Belgium tasting of citrus even pronounced even more at the finish. I will agree the alcohol is well masked.

One of a string of beer that Dad and I will be sampling for Fathers day. From one of my favorite brewers. A clear looking golden triple pours into Westmalle chalice. Fine fruit esters and spices. Taste is yeasty and zesty. A smooth triple that has a creamy finish. All these fine Belgians seem to mask the alcohol too well.

Corked bottle from Party Source. Poured hazy orange color with a huge frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Complex spicy fruit and yeasty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a good sweet beer.
